Question about Lite On (SOHC5236V) CD-RW/DVD-ROM Combo Drive
I was performing the normal maintenance and clean up on my pc, and plus I burned some CD's and audio no problem
all of a sudden I notice my CD was not autorunning, no problem let's manually run it and there it was (or was not) my CD drive letter was gone from windows.
after searching and searching, I kept coming across the "upper" and "lower" filter solution, tried and and that didn't work.
Tried uninstalling and reinstalling and let windows detect, did not work
tried to browse and select the generic driver in windows and that did not work, keeps saying there was an error while installing hardware and shows error code 39.
My Bios recognizes the drive but noticed no specs about it when it shows, and it's in location 0 (0) not sure if that is anything. I want to say my registry is affected but I can't understand half of it to even decipher.
After loading the Windows, the DVD/CD-ROM drives work properly, but we can not see the drives in “My Computer” (System can not recognize the drives.). When try to run the drives, it shows up a notice “Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code39).” Before solving this error, check the drives connection correctly, then follow the steps below:
Delete Device Manager. Most people will firstly think of Windows “Find New Hardware” when drives missed, but it does not always work out. To fix the problem: open “My Computer”’ “Control Panel” ’“System”’“Device Manager”’ “HDC(Hard Disk Controller) ”, then click “Delete”. Follow the note to reboot computer. After rebooting, the computer will find the Primary IDE Controller and Secondary IDE Controller again and install the drivers. Restart the computer again while the installation is completed. In this, we can get back our CD/DVD-ROM Drives.
The other way is by editing the registry to return the missed CD/DVD-ROM drives (Code 39 error.). Obviously, it is too risky to edit the registry if you are not familiar with it. To fix the error from the registry, carry out the following steps:
Exit and close all applications currently running on your PC.
Step1. Click Start > Run and type in Regedit, press Enter.
Step2. Look for the following registry key:
Delete any of the following registry entries under this key directory:
Step3. Reboot your PC and open My Computer to check that the CD-ROM drive is visible.
Also, have a look at the Device Manager to see if the yellow exclamation mark and the error code 39 are gone.
